Few people on this planet can claim themselves to be as tall as the newest member of the Memphis Grizzlies organization, Zach Edey.

Selected ninth overall during the 2024 NBA Draft, the former Purdue standout measures in at a whopping 7-foot-4, making him not only one of the biggest players in the game today but, quite literally, of all time.

In response to the team's selection, Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant crafted a hilarious reactionary post about Edey's arrival on his personal Instagram account, as he posted a particular scene from Rush Hour 3 that is intended to poke fun at the big man's menacing stature.

Of course, the Grizzlies are by no means strangers to having towering talents manning the middle for their franchise, as they've rostered several notable players such as Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol, and, most recently, Steven Adams who have registered in at 6-foot-11 or taller.

What bodes well for Edey is the fact that not only is he big, but it seems he knows how to use his size to its fullest potential.

The 22-year-old finds himself coming into the NBA fresh off an illustrious four-year stint with the Purdue Boilermakers where he would go on to claim several accolades and accomplishments, including two AP Player of the Year awards, two Big-10 All-Defensive Team selections, and, behind his efforts in 2023-24, set the organization's record for most points scored in a career with 2,516.

Edey is also fresh off an astounding season where he posted averages of 25.2 points, 12.2 rebounds (4.6 offensive), and 2.2 blocks while shooting 62.3 percent from the floor, which only further solidified his claim of being one of this draft class' most well-rounded prospects, regardless of size.

Of course, as Morant comically suggested, his build is what truly separates him from the rest of his fellow incoming rookies.
